The Herding Group

The Herding breeds have been bred to be intelligent, athletic, and diligent and are arguably the most trainable of all breeds, making them naturals for Obedience work, Agility, and Herding Trials. Throughout the years, responsible breeders have perpetuated the Herding dogs' natural instincts. They have evolved into independent but loyal dogs that are happiest when at work serving their masters. As long as they get enough exercise and mental stimulation, Herding dogs can make wonderful, devoted pets that will thrive on your companionship.
